ATON is a hopefully evolving classification theory. It aspires to unify knowledge around numbers and prefers naive methods. Some of the older posts are wrong but I'll keep them for the sake of continuity.

A classification of life and universe

The universe starts from a fuzzy state;

0. {universe}

and it remains essentially fuzzy while building structures. Then it polarizes into a mediated duality;

1. {sense,{field}}

The transition {} --> {,{}} has two implied directions of evolution;

{,{}} = [,[]] + [,[]]*[[],] + [[],]

Where the format is loosely stated, but it is somewhat like the Clifford algebra. It is undecidable whether 'sense' leads to 'field' or vice-versa. Like the chicken-egg dilemma. The fuzzy parent state transforms to [,[]]*[[],], and becomes the mediator of the duality. Like a tossed coin settling on it's rim, or having sexually fuzzy offspring.

The mediated duality form is observable in many areas;

. {mathematics} --> {operator,{number}}
. {quantum mechanics} --> {observer,{observed}}
. {music} --> {listener,{performer}}

Then, iterate again to get offspring functionality;

1. {sense,{field}}

2. {exclusive,{inclusive}, {space-time-gravity*-light, {weak-strong}} }

Where 'exclusive' stands for 'observe-move' or soft interaction, and 'inclusive' for 'reproduce-feed' or hard interaction. '*' stands for the field-antifield pair.

The combination 'space-time-gravity*-light' is non-intrusive or soft interaction, while 'weak-strong' is hard.

In mathematics;

1. {operator,{number}}
2. {additive,{multiplicative}, {0,{1}} }

'additive' is not intrusive like 'observe-move', yet 'multiplicative' is intrusive like 'feed-reproduce'. '0' and '1' are are the identity elements of the operators.

Therefore, 'field' seems to correspond to 'higgs'. The scalar field and it's associated operators are at the foundation of all systems. Like numbers for mathematics, money for economy.

Then, iterate until 6;

2-0. {exclusive,{inclusive}}
3-0. {observe,{move}, {reproduce,{feed}} }

2-1. {space-time-gravity*-light, {weak-strong}}
3-1. {space-time,{gravity*-light}, {weak,{strong}} }


3-0-0. {observe,{move}}
4-0. {analyze-hear,{imagine-see}, {sustain-propel,{navigate-manipulate}} }

3-0-1. {reproduce,{feed}}
4-1. {non-sexual,{sexual}, {taste*,{smell*}} }


3-1-0. {space-time,{gravity*-light}}
4-2. {space,{time}, {gravity*,{light}} }

3-1-1. {weak,{strong}}
4-3. {neutral-weak,{charged-weak}, {strong,{residual-strong}} }

The symmetry of 'weak' seems to be the symmetry of reproduction. Taste-strong correspondence is reasonable. Residual-strong refers to the force between nucleons.


4-0-0. {analyze-hear,{imagine-see}}
5-0. {analyze,{hear}, {imagine,{see}} }

4-0-1. {maintain-propel,{navigate-manipulate}}
5-1. {maintain,{propel}, {navigate,{manipulate}} }


4-1-0. {non-sexual,{sexual}}
5-2. {self-repr,{shared-repr}, {female,{male}} }

4-1-1. {taste*,{smell*}}
5-3. {taste,{untaste}, {smell,{unsmell}} }


4-2-0. {space,{time}}
5-4. {along-space,{lateral-space}, {along-time,{lateral-time}} }

4-2-1. {gravity*,{light}}
5-5. {gravity,{antigravity}, {electric,{magnetic}} }


4-3-0. {neutral-weak,{charged-weak}}
5-6. {organism-cell,{dna-molecule}, {star-planet,{moon-comet}} }

===> There seems to be a problem here with 'neutral-weak' to life mapping. Star-weak mapping seems to be OK. Still thinking about this.

4-3-1. {strong,{residual-strong}}
5-7. {black-hole/galaxy,{neutron-star/white-dwarf}, {hadron-lepton,{neutron-proton}} }

Male/female and star-planet/moon-comet correspondence rings a mythological bell.


5-0-0. {analyze,{hear}}
6-0. {specialize,{generalize}, {left-hear,{right-hear}} }

Analyzing is dual and performed by the two halves of the brain. While one side concentrates on detail, the other side concentrates on the context. This gives a clue to how we hear as well. The {bass,{treble}} duality of music corresponds to this.

5-0-1. {imagine,{see}}
6-1. {plan,{aim}, {left-see,{right-see}} }

Imagining is also dual, but lateral to analyzing and in the forward-backward direction. The frontal cortex does the long term planning ('aim' above). This gives a clue to how we see as well.


5-1-0. {maintain,{propel}}
6-2. {sustain,{break}, {propel-forward,{propel-backward}} }

Breaking is a part of maintaining, like sustaining.

5-1-1. {navigate,{manipulate}}
6-3. {left-turn,{right-turn},{make,{unmake}}

Navigation seems to be more than just left and right turn, but in general this is the case. Cars have just a steering wheel for navigation.

Manipulation is essentially an upmarket type of navigation involving choices along the way.


5-2-0. {self-repr,{shared-repr}}
6-4. {undifferentiated,{hermaphrodite}, {host,{guest}} }

5-2-1. {female,{male}}
6-5. {feminine-female,{masculine-female}, {masculine-male,{feminine-male}} }


5-3-0. {taste,{untaste}}
6-6. {eat,{drink}, {defecate,{urinate}} }

At the 6th step, sense becomes organ related.

5-3-1. {smell,{unsmell}}
6-7. {breathe-in,{breathe-out},{impregnated,{impregnate}}

Nose and sexual organs are closely related.


5-4-0. {along-space,{lateral-space}}
6-8. {forward,{backward}, {left,{right}} }

Space is essentially one complex dimension. Complex numbers are closed, and they have one along and one lateral dimension; {1,i}. There is only one space dimension between two objects. The surface of the earth can be viewed as a complex plane. There seems to be 3 perfect dimensions of space, but this is never the case, since there is always gravity distortion. Space can not exist without gravity. I think the apparent threeness of space is related to it's content; matter.

5-4-1. {along-time,{lateral-time}}
6-9. {forward,{backward}, {left,{right}} }

This point is also surprising for me, like the previous one on space, although it is well known that time is complex. Time travel is predicted here.


5-5-0. {gravity,{antigravity}}
6-10. {+gravity,{-gravity}, {+antigravity,{-antigravity}} }

Gravity is a polarized field like electric field. Anti-gravity is predicted here and it maps to magnetic field below, to give a clue about it's character. It seems anti-gravity can be produced by electric currents.

5-5-1. {electric,{magnetic}}
6-11. {+electric,{-electric}, {+magnetic,{-magnetic}} }

The poles of magnetic field do not exist separately, but electric field's do.


5-6-0. {organism-cell,{dna-molecule}}
6-12. {organism,{cell}, {dna,{molecule}} }

===> There seems to be a problem here with 'neutral-weak' to life mapping. Star-weak mapping seems to be OK. Still thinking about this.

5-6-1. {star-planet,{moon-comet}}
6-13. {star,{planet}, {moon,{comet}} }

5-7-0. {hadron-lepton,{neutron-proton}}
6-14. {hadron,{lepton}, {neutron,{proton}} }

5-7-1. {black-hole/galaxy,{neutron-star/white-dwarf}}
6-15. {black-hole,{galaxy}, {neutron-star,{white-dwarf}} }


Senses and fields expand into two parallel binary trees complementing each other. The numbers involved correlate strongly with mythology.


They add up to 2*(1+2+3+4+5+6) = 42 (The answer maybe 42 after all!). The tree expands into 64 distinct categories at the outer edge. Reminding I-Ching and the Jewish mythology about creation. Many more interesting numbers can be extracted from the tree, depending on how it is looked at.

Complex numbers, modular group and Mobius transformation are closely related.

A link to computers is also made. Electronic computing is based on binary trees. The universe seems to be a boolean computer at the overall category calculation level.

13 senses

I have proposed that measure and balance are complementary senses mediated by their corresponding touch sense. The balance sense is out of the way and and it's two organs are hidden in the middle ear. For this reason it is usually not regarded as a sense. I have not been able to figure out the organ for the measure sense. I proposed that it is somehow related to the central clock in the brain. But what is this clock and where is it?

I concluded that the organ of the measure sense is in fact the body itself. We touch the universe with our bodies while measuring and balancing. Without measure and touch one can not balance. In fact both measure and balance senses are types of touch evolved from their root touch sense. Like {see,touch,hear} and {smell,touch,taste}. Touch is a generic sense, the scalar field of the senses.

A good connection to quantum mechanics is made as well. Quantum mechanics studies scattering of quanta. Basically it studies touch. I have already attempted a mapping of senses and organs to fields and charges. Thus this study of the senses is an attempt to figure out the universe by comparing it to life. A top-down look at or a short cut to unification. The string theory has already proposed ten dimensions, corresponding to my ten senses.

When a dynamical system goes through the process of quantization, it has to keep it's balance. An organism is made of cells and higher quanta (organs) while it balances itself. Without balance, it can not execute it's other senses and survive. Strangely enough, the balance sense couples to hearing, like space couples to gravity. I think {measure,balance} coupling corresponds to {space,time} coupling, suggesting that space and time are fields. The organs of the balance sense are three liquid filled hairy (inside) and coupled rings for each ear. Thus balance maps to space, and measure maps to time.

The heart is the organ of the measure sense, and the whole body is the organ of the mediating touch sense. It provides the essential rhythm for the brain and the body. The brain's (and the body's) clock is the heart. The definition of 'second' comes from the heart's rhythm.

Senses and organs are not stand-alone things; they interact. I find the {balance,hearing} coupling most interesting, like {space,gravity} coupling. There is a duct between the nose and the eyes, mapping to the {weak,light} coupling.

The following format exposes the importance of {measure,balance} coupling;


They are foundation of existence, like space-time. Both are hidden. Of course the real foundation is the touch sense, like the Higgs field. Previously I proposed that {taste,smell} were the foundation. I am still somewhat undecided on this point, but I prefer the {measure,balance} coupling as the base.

Another interesting point is the {mouth,stomach,anus} coupling. I think there is connection to the black holes here. Black holes couple to space-time strongly, like {mouth,stomach,anus} making a hole right through the body. Life is essentially a filtering process from the feeding angle. Nose couples to mouth, and genitals couple to anus. There seems to be a strong link between the nose and the genitals. It seems that while the nose was differentiating from the mouth, genitals differentiated from the anus. Reproduction and feeding come from the same base. Is that why many humans (and animals!) like anal and oral sex I wonder?

Are there senses corresponding to the genitals? Which fields do they map to? Maybe there are 12 senses. What are the two complementary senses of sex? Penetrating and being penetrated? I will call them 'pen' and 'vag' for the moment. The organs are obvious; penis and vagina and their attached organs. If they are all listed together in a suitable format exposing their hierarchy;


or all 12 of them with their corresponding mediating touch senses;


With the all inclusive nothingness {}, they are 13. That strange prime number with lots of ancient historical reference. 13 and 20 make the foundation of the Mayan calendar. I wonder where 20 comes from?
